Objective: To determine melanopsin expression in cornea.
Summary: Found no light-evoked activation of melanopsin-expressing fibers in cornea or in cell bodies in the TG; melanopsin protein might serve other sensory functions in the cornea. One justification for this idea is that melanopsin expressed in Drosophila photoreceptors can serve as a temperature sensor.
Usage: For the primary staining, we used Anti-Melanopsin at 1:5000 for 3 days.
